At Least N8Billion To Be Approved For Climate Change In 2017–Rep. Sam Onuigbo

By Ikenga Chronicles February 27, 2017

The chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Climate Change, and member representing Ikwuano/Umuahia North/Umuahia South federal constituency has revealed that at least N8billion Naira will be approved to address Climate Change issues in Nigeria, in 2017.

This was revealed in a statement made available to the media by his media aide, Mr. Nnaemeka Oruh.

According to the statement, the N8billion will be made available by the federal government, and represents a massive improvement from the paltryN30million and below, casually made available in previous years.

While Rep. Onuigbo recognises that the N8billion is little compared to the USD8billion being put in by Morrocco, and about USD50billion by Saudi Arabia, it represents a significant growth that has begun to reflect President Muhammadu Buhari’s commitment to addressing Climate Change issues, and ensuring that Nigeria adheres to her Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC).

“One cannot stress enough how impactful Climate Change has been on our society, and the need to take it seriously. Within the week, I will make a full presentation on this, and hope that from now on, more attention will be paid to Climate Change, as it has the power to affect other key areas of our lives” Rep. Onuigbo stated.
